The property is complemented by three major modern structures that are useful and comfortable. There is a single story main residence with detached garage and guest apartment upstairs. Approximately ¼ mile to the south is the caretaker’s residence, large shop and storage cabin.
The entry to the main home is through a large sculpted custom electric gate. This gate helps enclose the 9 groomed acres that help preserve kids, dogs, privacy and security. This area has underground sprinkler system with 117 heads. At first glance the main home and garage/guest home appear to be log. In fact, they are of standard construction with 3½-inch thick ponderosa pine log siding and drywall inside. This gives a great look that fits the environment yet is still very low maintenance.
The main residence is a three bedroom, three bath, ranch style home of approximately 2,400 square feet. The home was built in 2001 and that year won the Bozeman area Parade of Homes. Large windows on every side give a commanding view of the property and are great for natural light and wildlife viewing.
Built to match the home and just a few steps away is the two-car garage, shop and storage area with an upstairs guest apartment. The garage has radiant floor heat, space for two cars leaving room for a large shop area. The apartment has two bedrooms and one bath, indoor and outdoor access, plus a scenic balcony.
The caretaker’s home and workshop have a total of 4,400 square feet of finished space. The ground level has a 2,200 square foot shop/storage area giving ample room for all types of projects. The upstairs has three bedrooms, two baths, is beautifully finished, with large windows and a balcony with great views. Both levels have radiant floor heating, and the upstairs has central air conditioning.
The property is home to an incredible diversity of game and non-game birds and animals. Whitetail deer, pheasants, and many types of waterfowl are found in abundance. Hungarian partridge, dove, moose and black bear are not uncommon. Raptors including bald eagles, great horned owls, red-tailed and rough-legged hawks, and kestrel falcons at times call this property home. The number and variety of songbirds that can be seen at the bird feeders off the back porch are incredible. Other full-time or part-time residents to this paradise include red fox, coyotes, mink, river otter, turkey, marmot, ruffed grouse and raccoon.
Gallatin River Sporting Paradise boasts over ¼ mile of one of the best fishing and most private stretches of the Gallatin River. The property lies upstream from most of the main irrigation diversions so it enjoys far more water than one would see just a few miles downstream. It is also about 3 miles downstream and 2 ½ miles up from any public access making it very private and seldom fished by anyone other than the owner. Being downstream from the Gallatin Canyon and upstream from much of the irrigation diversion gives this area a high fish count and a great average size. Browns and rainbows are common with the occasional brook trout being caught.
The Valley Ditch flows all year long and crosses the property for almost ¾ of a mile offering a small technical fishery. It looks and fishes very much like a small spring creek and is a wonderful addition to the property. Its course takes the stream right by the main residence, guest apartment and caretaker’s home.
Gallatin River Sporting Paradise represents the finest in trout fishing, shooting, bird and deer hunting available in Montana and the Northern Rocky Mountains.
